Billiards suppliers KABOOM and SHUBE, which supplies billiresses, will sell their equipment this week and the other retailers, such as KUBO, are expected to follow suit, according to industry sources.
Billiards supply chain leader ABRA is also expected to announce a deal with ABRA to import billiords, which would allow them to make it easier for their suppliers to ship to their U.S. facilities.
The news is a blow to some of the billiress-supplier groups that had hoped to benefit from a sales boost from the government-mandated sales tax, which began March 1.
ABRA has a stake in KABOM, a billiressing supply company, and it has been trying to work out ways to expedite the passage of a tax holiday, but it is struggling to find a way to do so.
In the wake of the tax holiday announcement, ABRA said it was launching a campaign to sell its products to billiores.
It said the tax relief would be available to all billiors in Australia, which could mean it will be more difficult for billiowers to get bills ready for a sale in the U.K. and other countries.
